The Morganist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Cassandria of Morganstar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 7.785 billion Pittsburghers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth a remarkable 1,720 trillion Golden Morgan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 220,967 Golden Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, punitive tariffs protect local industry, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Pittsburgh's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Greater Pittsburgh is ranked 227,834th in the world and 8,711th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -639.98 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
